I’ve enjoyed getting to know the team, identifying their strengths and using them to everyone’s advantage. 

I particularly enjoy afternoon tea time, when I can spend time with the residents, sharing stories and memories over a cup of tea and, of course, freshly baked goodies!

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Lauder Lodge care home.

Thank you for welcoming my precious friend. The team kept me informed during lockdown and welcomed me back warmly when I walked through the door again. They took time to read the books he had written, baked a wonderful birthday cake and scrubbed his room when he was 'resident of the day'. To those who looked after him, thank you all for being part of this wonderful family.

Relative of a resident, June 2021

The staff they have are very friendly. they make a point of knowing who you are. It is quite difficult for them as my relative does not want to get involved but they try their best to encourage her.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

Thank you for my friend's care and for doing such a wonderful job in welcoming him to Lauder Lodge. His recent comments have really shown us that we have chosen the right home for him and that he is very happy with the care he is receiving. We have seen a significant difference in him. Having lived in isolation for several years, he is reconnecting with the people around him and taking an interest in his environment. Thank you for continuing to provide such high quality care.

Friend of a resident, May 2020

The staff are all very caring, patient and cheerful. They are well trained and they encourage him in to take part in activities.

Ms Norma Turnbull, March 2019

People are always there when we have any questions. They are helpful in an easy way and it had never been a problem to ask them questions.
